PS4 Slim And New DualShock 4

PlayStation VR

The PlayStation 4 Slim is out in South Africa from 4 November 2016. The console comes in a 500GB model, as well as a 1TB model that includes Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. The standard 500GB model retails for R5199, while the 1TB bundles will sell for R5999. The console only comes in a jet black model, with the new DualShock 4 controller bundled into each purchase. The new Dualshock 4 controller is not much different from the current model. It has improved battery life, and new lightbar at the top of the touch pad. Other than the lightbar, you might notice a few tweaks on the controller like grey buttons and a grey analogue stick tint. This is a change over the black button and analogue shade in the past controller.

PS4 Pro

The PlayStation 4 Pro, or PS4 Pro for short, will be available in late November in SA and retail for R6999. The console is a more powerful version of the PS4 with double the processing power, and the ability to render games at 4K.

Sony released a list of games we will see support the 4K feature the day the console launches in the US on 10 November 2016. These games are:

  • Battlefield 1
  • Battlezone
  • Bound
  • Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3
  • Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered
  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

  • Tumble
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
  • Until Dawn: Rush of Blood
  • Viking Squad
  • Wheels of Aurelia
  • World Of Tanks
  • XCOM 2

Sony also announced that the November releases like Watch Dogs 2, Final Fantasy XV, as well as December releases such as The Last Guardian, and Gravity Rush 2, will also make use of the PS4 Pro’s processing power. All first party releases in 2017 and beyond will do the same. Keep in mind that these titles will either support 4K, or have some other graphical advantage over the PS4 Slim. Both consoles however, will support HDR, with the current PS4 and PS4 slim model already patched with HDR support.

The PlayStation VR is set to change the way we use virtual reality in our homes, and we will be able to play with this when it launches in South Africa on 24 January 2017. The PlayStation VR headset will retail for R6 999 with the base model coming with just the headset. You will need to purchase PlayStation VR Move Controllers and a PlayStation VR Camera separately, as they will be needed to function the device. Most games can be played with a DualShock 4, but games like Batman VR, will need the Move Controllers. All PlayStation VR games will need the camera as it is used to track the headset.

We cannot wait to get our hands on the PS4 Pro and PlayStation VR when we get ours later this month. Are you picking one of these new gadgets up? Let us know in the comments below.
